What travellers are saying
- Fabulous walk with scenic views. I managed to walk from Looe to Polperro but the last uphill climb nearly killed me. Once I "eventually" reached the highest brow, it was a relief to walk down an equally equal incline. After taking in Polperro, I had to find the bus stop at the top of the village to get back to Looe. I discovered from a local that the bus sits at a stop facing in the opposite direction to the Looe direction then reverses before heading to Looe. Had that local not informed me then I would have been oblivious, who wouldn't? I took advantage of speaking to the bus driver to ascertain "if" I was on the correct bus but his sarcastic manner was most rude and unhelpful. A couple who shared the ride back also experienced the bad attitude of the driver, therefore BEWARE of bus drivers with chips on their shoulders! I only wanted some help for heaven's sake!Written 18 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Well, what a wonderful experience we have all just had at the beautiful Looe Valley Vineyard!
We recently attended with 19 of our owners from our lodge holiday parks and we all had such a super time! The weather was not the best, but as the seating area was covered this did not dampen our moods!
Sue and Charlie were such fabulous hosts and Charlie educated us very well with his knowledge of the vines and extensive knowledge of wines!
The wine tasting was really great and the cheese and bread platters were unbelievably delicious and so great that the produce was all from local suppliers.
If you are looking for a great way to spend a few hours, we would highly recommend, 5*s in every way!
Thank you Charlie & Sue,

- Brilliant visit brought to life by the keepers plus a letter hunt for children which was a lot of fun. The knowledge and passion of the keepers in helping the monkeys was first class too.

- Recently We were in Looe on a very hot Autumn day, such a lovely place and the sandy beach was teeming with people.
A very safe looking beach with nice calm waters.
It was great to see all the families, lots of kids really enjoying themselves on the sand and in the water. The place was awash with a sea of sun umbrellas and beach chairs.
A bit of a walk from the very big paying carpark, but it is a lovely town to walk through to get to the beach.
Lots of places to eat and drink, good toilet facilities .
Very nice place to visit , it got very crowded in the lovely hot weather,Written 16 October 2023
- Amazing Island to visit or stay. Wardens Jon and Claire were so knowledgeable and friendly and work so hard to keep the Island an amazing place for wildlife.Written 4 July 2023
- With an entry fee of around 10% of that of other Cornish attractions this couldn’t possibly be any good, could it?
Well it's better than just "any good", it's absolutely superb.
The history of Looe is in many ways the history of England, and this wonderfully jumbled collection of artefacts, treasures and curiosities relates that history wonderfully through the lens of the lives and experiences of the people of this small seaside town.
From the earliest times before time, right through to the present day this fascinating museum has it all. Even the building itself, a Tudor guildhall is beautifully presented, and seeing it is well worth the entrance fee on its own.
I rather suspect that the secret of the Museum's success is that it's run by volunteers, people who love and live in the town.
Looe itself, with it's multitude of pasty shops and winding alleys is an attraction in itself, although arguably less appealing than neighbouring Polperro. However, the jewel in the crown is this excellent- and inexpensive - little gem.
Don't miss it.Written 20 September 2023

- Lovely Bay which was walking distance from our caravan park Trelawn Manor. No footpaths so have to keep your wits about you on the busy narrow road, but it is worth it. Very peaceful and picturesque. There is a cafe set back from beach which had a good selection of snacks. Can take a cliff walk from here.Written 1 June 2023
- A lovely carol service. The ambiance in the church is so peaceful with beautiful acoustics. The organ is beautiful with a full sound. Fortunately it is played well by two or three organists.Written 14 January 2023
- When visiting Looe we always go for a walk around Kilminorth Woods. Whatever the weather it is easy to walk around.Written 14 October 2023
- We were walking a section of the South West coastal path & came upon this lovely little cove just around lunch time.
The weather was sunny so we had a cold beer at the little bar (with a great seating area) before crossing to the cafe for food.
There is a good selection, on their menu & specials board, but I decided against a cream tea as the scones looked like supermarket quality and not obviously home made.
I had a wrap which came with fries & my partner had a sandwich. We asked for another side of fries as we’d walked 7 miles since breakfast & we were hungry.
My fries were ok but the extra portion were skin on & really crispy & tasty, although one portion of either would’ve done two of us. A bottle of beer & a cup of tea brought the bill to £29 which was about £5 more than I thought it should be but it was decent food. The staff were very nice as wellWritten 9 July 2023
- Walking to Talland Bay in the morning was my favourite part of the holiday- so beautiful! The wild flowers in the hedge rows; the gorgeous beach and rock pools. The smart cafe near the beach does great coffee!Written 1 July 2022
